GARDEN experts have been digging deep for a Kidderminster charity.
The team from Webbs garden centre in West Hagley brightened up outdoor spaces at Kemp Hospice with planters and a raised vegetable plot for patients.
Window boxes and planters were also placed at the front of Kemp’s building in Mason Road as part of national “garden re-leaf day” on Tuesday last week.
Ele Millward, Kemp fundraiser, said: “The transformation of the front of the building is absolutely fantastic and we are all thrilled, already patients have been commenting about how welcoming it feels.
“Webbs went above and beyond, bringing additional features and even re-planted a border for us by the new raised bed in the garden, which looks great.
“They were so enthusiastic and we are very grateful to them for all the time and effort and the wonderful gift of plants.”
The garden centre was participating in a “five hospices challenge” which also saw them give planting makeovers to charities in Worcester, Bromsgrove and Stourbridge.
Webbs chairman, Ed Webb, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to help our local hospices and bring the community together through gardening.”
